Note Holders

So are you looking for a way to hang up your notes and lists in a stylish way? Do you have some spare wood hanging around, paint, paper, clothes pins? Then how bout putting together some of these? I started with a board and painted it. I cut some pieces of plywood to size glued them to my board. Then I stained the piece, and once dry I mod podged paper to the plywood pieces. I also covered some clothes pins with coordinating papers. I then glued them to the plywood pieces. String it up with wire and tada!

These three that I have done are all different sizes. I just used whatever boards I had laying around in the garage. I think this blue one would look great displaying some favorite pictures!

Okay so how perfect is this one for your child's artwork? I glittered the clothes pins instead of covering them with paper.

And just a short note, I'm going to be adding some more things to ebay soon. Here are a couple of things already on there. This HUGE lot of Halloween decor items. Perfect if you're throwing a party!

Do you make spice cakes? Here is a bunch of supplies!

Picture Window

So I just finished this today. Okay so I stared and finished it today. Now I'm kind of mad at myself for selling my old windows on my garage sale. After having the windows sit in my garage for 4 years, I was tired of storing them thinking one day I would do something with them. I had one left and this turned out so good I wish I could make more!

I had never used Mod Podge on glass and was a little apprehensive. But it turned out awesome! After cleaning the window up really good, aka hosing it down with the garden hose. I cut two rectangles of fabric to size and glued them on with Mod Podge. I screwed in some eye hooks and threaded them with jute.

Next I Mod Podged some coordination paper to some clothes pins and added a touch of glitter. I mean how cool did this turn out? It will be for sale at Handmade'ns this year!
